I love working outdoors when the weather warms up and creating a decorative place for my spring and summer entertaining.
One thing that I plan to do this year is to find a more decorative way to hide my gardening tools, and that includes my garden hose.
You can buy any number of garden hose hangers from home improvement stores but there is just so much more enjoyment in creating your own DIY garden hose storage, don’t you think.
So, I started looking for creative ways to store my garden hose and I found 7 wonderful ideas.
I don’t really like just hanging my garden hose. I prefer to store it out of sight, and many of these DIY garden hose storage ideas do that.
1. Rustic Galvanized Wash Tub Hose Storage
If you have an old galvanized washtub, even if it’s rusty, you can create a nice rustic looking storage area for your garden hose. Just put the tub under the outside spigot and then coil your hose up inside.
This is a great idea if you are looking to add some farmhouse looking decor to your outdoors.
2. Simple DIY Hose Storage Bench
If you want to hide your garden hose away from sight, this DIY garden bench is the perfect way to do that. This is a really simple wooden bench to make and it costs less than $200 if you have to buy all of the materials.
Plus, you get a great storage area for your garden hose as well as some additional seating on your deck or patio.
3. Repurposed Pallet Garden Storage System
An old pallet, some paint and just a few other hardware materials are all you need to create the perfect garden hose storage. In fact, this pallet storage system helps you to store and organize all of your garden tools.
The hose hangs on a hook and you have places for your spades, shovels and just about anything else that you need for working in the garden. I really love creative outdoor pallet projects.
4. Easy DIY Garden Hose Hanger
This DIY garden hose hanger is as gorgeous as it is easy to make. You can have this one finished in just an afternoon, and that includes cementing your post into the ground.
The decorative metal that holds the hose is gorgeous and you can put this in the ground right beside the spigot so your hose is always right there where you need it. This is a great reclaimed wood project, too if you happen to have a few wooden posts on hand.
5. DIY Garden Hose Storage Tub
This DIY garden hose tub not only keeps your garden hose put away out of sight, it has a hole in the bottom so that the hose comes through for ease of use. You don’t even have to take the entire hose out of the tub if you just need it to come out a little bit.
This is a pretty easy galvanized tub to make and it has such a great rustic appeal to it, don’t you think?
6. DIY Garden Hose Planter
You can create the perfect storage for your garden hose with a wooden planter. Not only does this help you to store your hose out of sight, but it also serves as a planter so it is very decorative.
This is a really easy wooden planter box to build and you could have a few of them to decorate your outdoors, and just use one of them to hide away that garden hose.
7. Upcycled Tire Rim Hose Holder
Old tire rims are a great way to enjoy a good upcycling project. Take this garden hose holder for instance. You make it from an old tire rim and it is super easy.
You just have to paint the rim – if you want to paint it – and then screw it to a wooden post or even right there onto the side of your deck or house. Pair this upcycled tire rim project up with your favorite ways to repurpose old tires!
